The Cappellini design is defined by the avant-garde approach of Giulio Cappellini. He has been discovering with incredible flair those who were to become the most important designers on the international market. Research and experimentation generate products with very different expressive languages. All of these coexist without any contradictions in the Cappellini Furniture catalog. These include design icons and novelties, industrial processes and traditions, technological research, and new materials.
The company highlights an eclectic mix of materials, styles, and in-depth design research. Today, the Milan-based brand has stores across the globe. It has ranges of office and home furniture, as well as a contract as a supplier for the hotel market.
Cornelio Cappellini: The Story
Founded back in 1946 by Enrico Cappellini in a small town north of Como in Italy, Cappellini has become the brand we know today over the last several decades.
This family business was originally a workshop specializing in the handcrafted manufacture of furniture for everyday life.
A Classic Interior Designs Talent Handed Down From Father to Son
It was in 1960--when Cappellini began to produce contemporary Italian modern furniture--that the company started to become successful. Cappellini presents its new and innovative products in a hall at the Milan Furniture Fair among the most successful brands every year. This small exhibition quickly became a popular rendez-vous for design enthusiasts. It greatly contributed to the brand's reputation. However, it was really under the muse of Giulio--son of Enrico Cappellini--that the products really took off.
Rising International Fame
Back in 1977, the talents of Giulio Cappellini enabled the company to take an unequalled place on the international design market. He is a talent scout and often a forerunner. He is also a man of insatiable curiosity and is always on the lookout for new opportunities.
Cappellini designer furniture and lighting are of the highest quality. They are made from original combinations of different furniture materials, and they have different styles. It is something almost alive, with lively fractures and contradictions.
Some great pieces from the Cappellini collection can be viewed at Modern Resale.

Modern Italian-style Chairs
Different factors come into play when choosing modern chairs for the home. They must be optimally matched to the surrounding space--first and foremost to the tables. But they must also guarantee a good level of comfort. It is thus necessary to find the right compromise with aesthetics.
Tips for choosing your new Cappellini chair
If it is a kitchen, the chairs must be comfortable and meet practicality requirements. In this case, functional materials such as wood, leather or stain-resistant fabric should be chosen.
Modern chairs with a plastic shell will do the trick.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for chairs for elegant dining room tables, you should choose precious materials. These can include a lot of wood, straw, untreated leather or velvet. This is especially the case if the tables in question are also the representative element of a living room.
If it is a professional office, leather always has a certain charm. If they are intended for a bedroom, they should be chosen with a cover that matches the curtains and upholstery.
Contemporary Custom-made Tables
A visual eye-catcher in your living room, the table is an essential element that sets the tone and atmosphere of your living room. When buying new tables, it is not enough to simply follow your favorites. Instead, you have to take into account a lot of decisive parameters in full detail in order to create harmony in the room and avoid the wrong setting. To do this, some essential questions need to be asked:
- What is the shape of your living room?
- How is it arranged?
- What is the style of your interior?
- What is the shape that will best complement the furniture materials already present?
- How much space do you have for this new table?
- What will you use it for?
- Do you have kids? How many?
- What are your priorities: robustness, aesthetics, ease of maintenance?
- Where is the lighting?
Tips for choosing your new Cappellini table
If your living room is small, opt for a transparent or white table. A glass coffee table will be perfect to enlarge the space to the largest and avoid a "too full" effect. Conversely, in a large living room, a heavy material will be more suitable, such as a wooden table. In a modern or industrial setting, a table in metal or black will add a very nice design touch to your living room.
If you want to add a coffee table to your bedroom, the same rules apply. If the room is rather small, it is preferable to opt for a transparent or light-colored coffee table so as to not clutter it up. Otherwise, you can opt for wood, metal or dark colors. Always make sure it is in accordance with the decorative theme of the room as well as the color of the wall.
The shapes invented by Cornelio Cappellini's design artists are extremely rich. These include:
- In a semicircle
- In height
